Can I dye my topper?

We have rigorously tested our toppers to see how they respond to a variety of colour services – both bleach/lifting, tints and toners.

Our blonde based toppers can be tinted to darker shades and toned to various shades of blonde: e.g. gold tones, copper/red tones, purple/violet tones etc.  However, toning to achieve cooler or ash blonde tones is not advisable, as our testing has revealed a propensity for the hair to pull/hold green tones when using ash.

We strongly advise NOT to bleach/lift our blonde toppers as they have already been lightly processed and it will compromise the quality of the hair.

Our brunette-based toppers can be tinted to darker shades and can be lifted 2-3 levels maximum to create highlighted and balayage effects, followed by toning services.

Please note: alternative hair tends to yield darker results than bio hair, so always opt for 1-2 shades lighter when using tints.

When bleaching/lifting do not use higher than 20 vol developer and always use a bond reinforcing agent (such as Olaplex/Silaplex system).

We advise you to always take your alternative hair to a colour specialist who has experience with colouring alternative hair pieces. We recommend Peluka Salon in Essex. You can also visit the MyNewHair website to search for a hairdresser who is trained in cutting and colouring alternative hair in your area.

Preloved pieces postage

From 2022, we have made the decision to post out all preloved pieces without its original packaging (unless stated on the listing). You will receive your topper or wig in a flat envelope with the hair inside a plastic bag. This is to keep our costs as low as possible and to enable us to offer you free postage in the UK.

Are preloved pieces washed before sending?

We ask our sellers to wash the topper or wig before sending it to us. We style the piece for photographs and gently brush it before posting it out to you.
